Subsea superconducting transmission cables were shown to offer greater economic benefits to the energy system than conventional high-voltage, direct current (HVDC) copper technology in a 2050 offshore grid. The University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, UK, and SuperNode, Ireland, have conducted technical and techno-economic studies analysing the potential benefits of high-temperature superconductor subsea transmission cables. Read more about these studies on page 7.
